Maximalism

Individualism. Storytelling. Memories.

Maximalism showcases the return of highly decorative and personal interiors. Old and new are layered to create exciting stories, with furniture and objects acting as souvenirs of our lives.

One or two grounding tones pull together contrasts across mixed patterns and scales. The space becomes a cabinet of curiosities as each piece makes a statement through silhouette, fabric choice, color or unique backstory.

Japandi

Minimalist. Neutral. Balanced.

Japandi is rooted in a blending of the design principles from Japanese and Scandinavian styles. Decluttered spaces showcase elegant, clean lines.

Even lighting across muted earth tones offers a sense of tranquility. This harmonizes with accents of natural textures and an abundance of mood‑boosting greenery.

Ocean Hues

Calm. Contemporary. Deep.

Ocean Hues are a key trend for 2021, as reflected by Benjamin Moore's Color of the Year, Aegean Teal.

Comforting blues ranging from inky tones to soft aquas create a sense of tranquility while maintaining a modern feel.

Global Style

Earthy. Worldly. Natural.

Global Style is a continuing trend that reflects our travels — or our desires to travel. Our admiration for diverse cultures spans the territory of a bold safari and draws our attention to small details and motifs.

This artful blend of wildlife and culture favors warm tones and textures in our hunt for the nostalgia of a spontaneous getaway.
